This morning’s firing of Matt Lauer paints a dark picture for the mainstream media.

It’s clear that for years the Left’s largest commentators  have been protected while they leveraged the media’s vast propaganda machinery to  aggressively target even the flimsiest of stories regarding allegations against Republican politicians and candidates.

The Today show opened with long time anchor Savannah Guthrie reporting that Matt Lauer had been terminated by NBC because of sexual assault allegations that occurred at the Sochi Olympics in 2014.

The victim’s name and why she chose to complain after three years remains unknown, but the president of NBC reportedly sent a letter to the NBC staff:

On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer. It represented, after a serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment. While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over 20 years he has been at NBC news, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident. Our highest priority is to create a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected. And any action that runs counter to our core values are met with consequences. We are saddened by these events. We will face it together as a news organization and do it as transparent a manner as we can.

 

Breitbart is reporting that Lauer was the subject of a New York Times investigation dealing with multiple sexual assault victims.  Even President Trump weighed in with a tweet:

Matt Lauer’s departure comes less than two weeks after Charlie Rose was forced to resign over similar allegations of sexual assault along with NBC’s Mark Halperin and the New York Times’ Glenn Thrush.

Only recently have long-standing allegations against sitting Senator Franken and Congressman Conyers come to light. Conyer’s actions even included a payouts from a congressional slush fund set up precisely to pay out sexual assault settlements, a fund that has paid out over $17 million, but very little had been reported by the mainstream media regarding these payouts over the years.

Meanwhile, the media continues to attack candidate Roy Moore from Alabama despite the paucity of evidence.  There is a double standard.
